The suspect first knocked on the door of the secondary house, identified himself to the resident as a police officer, implied he was armed, and said he was arresting the resident. He ordered the victim to take him to the main residence, where the suspect armed himself with a shotgun, searched the house and demanded property. He took a small amount of cash and left on foot. Officers located the suspect on Vernon Street and arrested the 51-year-old Roseville resident on suspicion of robbery, kidnapping (forcing the victim to move from one location to the other) and burglary.
Folsom Road, weapons arrest: At 1:36 a.m. May 18, an officer stopped a car on Harding Boulevard near Douglas Boulevard, and contacted four males inside the car.

Both the college and a charter elementary school in the same plaza were put on lockdown. Officers surrounded the area and searched for the suspect both inside the college buildings and in the adjacent open space area. Using video surveillance, officers were able to identifiy the suspect as a current student of the college. They found her in a classroom, on lockdown with her fellow students.

Stanford Crossing, stolen dog: At 4:50 p.m. May 15, officers responded to the lot of Costco, to a report that someone had stolen a beagle puppy from a car. The pup's owner was driving from the Bay Area to Tahoe. He parked his car in a shaded area of the lot, with all windows partially down, and left the pup inside the car while he went into Costco for a short period of time to buy provisions for his trip. When he returned, someone had taken the pup and left a note indicating they'd taken the pup because it had been left without water. The person did not leave any contact information. On May 17, after extensive media coverage of the theft, an unidentified couple dropped the puppy off at an Auburn-area animal rescue, and it was returned to its owner.
